Criminological rehabilitative treatments of abusive partners have always been considered of key impor- tance from a preventive point of view. Criminological research, and our experience as criminologists, has proved that even the most abusive partners—including uxoricides—after their convictions repeat the same violent relationship pattern. That said, the Chair of Criminology (University of Milan) set up the first action and research program in Italy offering treatment for perpetrators of domestic violence, called S.A.Vi.D.

Information about all the subjects treated will also be described and discussed: age, legal sta- tus motives, offender behavior prior to treatment, whether and how behavior changed after treatment.

Abstract

Criminological rehabilitative treatments of abusive partners have always been considered of key impor- tance from a preventive point of view. Criminological research, and our experience as criminologists, has proved that even the most abusive partners—including uxoricides—after their convictions repeat the same violent relationship pattern. That said, the Chair of Criminology (University of Milan) set up the first action and research program in Italy offering treatment for perpetrators of domestic violence, called S.A.Vi.D. (Stop Alla Violenza Domestica – an Italian acronym meaning: Stopping Domestic Violence) in 2010. Information about all the subjects treated will also be described and discussed: age, legal sta- tus motives, offender behavior prior to treatment, whether and how behavior changed after treatment.
